The Butterfly Effect

Hi bloggers,

Again I am entering a card into 2 challenges as there is so many to choose from at the moment.

I embraced the colour scheme from The Card Concept which is this beautiful selection:

I was inspired by the chocolate and silver elements in this picture and the silver stars just brought butterflies to my twisted mind.

I also thought I would enter it into Shopping Our Stash's "Favourite Technique" which is Using Apertures.

Normally I lattice aperture cards to give them a woven texture, but in this case I had only a few scraps that exactly matched the colour scheme. The butterflies are a lovely pale yellow, a chocolate coloured embossed middle one and a mirror silver card one on the bottom.

I made the antennae using some old copper wire and finished it of with a mirror card and silver strip on the side and some hot chocolate coloured twine.

Something a bit different for Xmas, catch ya
